Creating Wildwood & How Can We Rewild Britain

Wildwood Trust's Peter Smith explains the History of why Wildwood Trust was formed and our mission to Rewild Britain. In this lecture Peter explains the complex issues that will challenge us as we try to rewild Britain and make a space for nature. At the heart of the problem lies a broken economic system that gives perverse incentives to abuse nature and use land inefficiently. The corruption of economics over the last century & the propagation of discredited economic principles is directly responsible. Reversing this economic stupidity could lead to a rewilded world where there is wildlife, jobs and wealth for all in a system that captures economic rents for public revenue. This will enable us to internalise the damage we do to others and nature in a new economic & wildlife renaissance.
